They were tough, resourceful, and ready for anything! Storyteller Dolores Hydock brings to life stories of women of guts and gusto who settled the American West. They were pioneers, homesteaders, pistol-packin' card sharks, entertainers, and "upstairs girls," but they all played a part in putting the shine in the Golden West of the 1800s. Award-winning musician Bobby Horton adds a musical heartbeat with songs and tunes of the times.

The program is at the Homewood Public Library Auditorium, 1721 Oxmoor Road in Homewood, AL.
